CWAF-Kenya’s health and nutrition program seeks to facilitate and promote sustained improvements in the health and nutritional status of orphan and other vulnerable children.
CWAF-Kenya works to ensure that children, their mothers and other caregivers have access to and use key health and nutrition services, and adopt healthy behaviors, in both development and emergency situations. We use evidence-based interventions to address the major causes of illness, death and malnutrition, and continue to develop innovative strategies to deliver these services most effectively to as many people as possible, especially in resource-poor and emergency situations.
National advocacy and partnerships are crucial to informing and influencing policies and programs, and for increasing funding to serve more children.
We focus our efforts on maternal and newborn health and nutrition, child health and nutrition, adolescent health, school health and nutrition, emergency health and nutrition and HIV/AIDS.
